March heralds another action-packed month of tennis with some big tournaments on the horizon. The month kicks off with Davis Cup qualifiers, where 24 teams will compete for 12 spots in the Finals.

Although a number of top players will not feature for their respective countries in the qualifiers, some recognizable names like Casper Ruud, Jannik Sinner, Diego Schwartzman and Alexander Zverev are expected to take part.

The World No. 3 has been named in Germany's Davis Cup team, replacing Daniel Altmaier.

The Indian Wells and Miami Masters will be highly anticipated by tennis fans, particularly those in the US.

The Indian Wells Masters will take place between March 7-20. A number of top players will compete in the tournament, including Rafael Nadal, Daniil Medvedev, Alexander Zverev and Stefanos Tsitsipas. Although Novak Djokovic features on the entry list, he will probably miss out due to the vaccination policy in the US.
